US supermajor Chevron had won the double off Western Australia, making two gas finds in Australia’s Carnarvon basin.

The Clio-2 well, drilled in WA-205-P permit area about 150 kilometres offshore in 990 metres of water, hit 115 metres of net gas pay. The well was drilled to 4405 metres.

Chevron operates the permit with a 66.66% stake, with Shell holding the remaining equity.

Kentish Knock-1, which was drilled in 1200 metres of water to 2500 metres total depth, hit 34 metres of net has pay.

The Kentish Knock prospect lies about 300 kilometres off the Western Australian coast. The prospect is in the WA-365-P permit area in the Exmouth Plateau, the deep-water frontier of the Carnarvon basin.

Chevron also operates Kentiosh Knock with a 50% stake. Shell has the remaining 50%.
